What fucking charter? What fucking council?

In another show of blatant ridiculousness, the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha has accepted a seat on the National Council for Building a Better Fiji (NCBBF). To be fair, its only one of many rotten institutions who has gone ahead and aligned itself with individuals who really don’t care about ordinary Fijians. The reasons according to Mr Arya included “having the best interests of the nation” and “to move Fiji forward”.

Now for those who don’t have some brain disease those statements sound awfully familiar. Yes, the interim government and military have had this unusual habit of parroting those very statements for our benefit on a daily basis. Especially Bainimarama who seems to have himself set on a timer to play the same old messages daily at the usual time.

But getting on to today’s lesson. The Peoples (Military) Charter and the NCBBF (and for that matter the military council). The word “charter” has replaced “constitution” in the eyes of our rulers. Also the word “council” has replaced the word of “parliament”. This subtle use of the language fools few and makes the highly intelligent laugh with stitches in their sides.

Essentially, Fiji’s constitution and parliament has been replaced by hand picked (not democratically elected) individuals and a piece of paper set to override the constitution. So much for not abrogating it, you’ve done it by proxy. The catch cry from Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has been to “come together for Fiji” and “thinking of the country”. So he is saying that we’ll use a council and charter to determine how “WE, THE COUNCIL(S)” run Fiji so we can tell “YOU” how run your affairs. Shouldn’t it be “WE, THE PEOPLE” determine how “WE, THE PEOPLE” run our own affairs? Rubbish thats not truly democratic, thats just having elections and putting people in power (hehe…).

    It really looks like the Fijians are being ganged upon by everyone who has an agenda against us.

    The sad part is that the move is being led by Fijians at the behest and instigation of the blerry Indians.

    We must voice our opposition to the world so that this illegal charter does not see the light of day.

    Bhaini Marama is so intent on implementing the Charter that he has completely disregarded all other things bound by the laws of this country. He is pushing for the Charter to be implemented before the general elections to the point of paranoia.
